This dazzling Turbo 2 looks particularly smart in its original colour scheme of Bright Red and Bronze Grey. The vibrant bodywork presents extremely well with a smooth finish and few blemishes to note. The contrasting bumpers and sill covers are in perfect condition having just been treated to a full re-paint in the correct matte finish.
Looking further all glass and lenses are clear and crack-free, with the yellow front fog lamps completing the period French aesthetic. TURBO2 decals are present and correct on both doors, with the original TURBO decal still in place on the rear window.
The comfortable Renault 5 seats are upholstered in Sand cloth and show no signs of wear having been professionally re-trimmed in recent months. They are free from any stains with absolutely no sagging or damage to the bolsters. The colour-matched door cards also present perfectly and in the foot-wells the carpets are protected by a brand new set of mats. The leather steering wheel is original to the car and despite presenting with a light patina remains in very good order.
Neatly enclosed behind the front seats the turbocharged 1.4 is hidden away by insulating carpeted panels, which are easily removed with the included tool. On close inspection the engine bay is remarkably well preserved, and is one of the cleanest of the R5 Turbos we have seen here at 4 Star.
For the new keepers peace of mind a major service has just been carried out, which included replacement of the points, condenser, spark plugs, air filter, fuel filter, oil filter, and oil. The brakes were also bled and the fluid was replaced. The clutch fluid was also changed.
Power is transferred to the rear wheels via smooth 5-speed manual transmission. Packing a near-supercar punch this little Renault is immensely pleasurable to drive.
The Turbo sits on the original set of turbine-style wheels finished in the factory grey colour. They present extremely well with almost no signs of use and absolutely no cloudiness to the lacquer. The alloys are shod in a matching set of Michelin TRX tyres all round, as per the factory specification.
The chassis number indicates that this Turbo 2 was produced for the 1985 model year. The car was supplied new to Germany but ended up leaving Europe in the nineties. It resided on the salt-free roads of Japan from 1994 up until very recently, having just been imported by 4 Star with all taxes paid. It will be supplied freshly registered for UK road use and ease of export.
The car was tucked away in storage for a number of years and so a light re-commissioning was undertaken upon arrival in the UK. It is now running particularly well and has additionally received a major service. Some light cosmetic work was also carried out to ensure a factory correct exterior finish. Paint code stickers still present under the bonnet confirm the car to be in the original colour combination of Rouge Vif (075) and Gris Bronze (614).
The car is currently undergoing preparation prior to sale but is available to purchase now. Please call us for more information and additional photographs.
